HSHS Holy Family Hospital has received a five-star overall hospital rating for quality from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the top score in the federal agency’s ratings system.

The overall hospital rating shows how well each hospital performed, on average, compared to other hospitals in the U.S., ranging from one to five stars. The more stars, the better a hospital performed on the available quality measures. Out of the 3,121 hospitals ranked nationwide through this rating system, only 431 hospitals, or 13.81%, received the five-star overall hospital rating.
The five areas of quality outlined by CMS for their overall hospital rating system include:
- Patient Experience
